The work permit is required to have the name of the employer and it will only be acceptable at that place of employment.
Work permits may be obtained by the student at their OPS middle or high school during the school year by contacting the counselor.

Please email Student Information Services at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information before coming to the TAC building.
The student must be present to obtain the work permit. The state requires the signature of the student on work permits. Additionally, when applying for the work permit, proof of age is needed. For OPS students that proof is available in OPS student records. If, however, the applicant is home schooled or attends a private school, they must bring their original birth certificate with raised seal or a valid Nebraska ID.
A copy of all work permits is sent to the Nebraska Department of Labor by Student Information Services.
